Thousend times thanks!

To all the followers of the blog, to anyone who has been supportive of Frank or us in the last months and especially after his untimely death we want to say thanks from the bottom of our hearts. In the week after his passing we received so much warmth, stories, care and love, hardly describable. To us it was a very precious and valuable week and it was so good to have Frank at home where so many of his friends could visit him. And all the help, stories and info shared in that week led to a beautiful goodbye ceremony on a beautiful sunny autumn day. For those of you who could not attend, or those of you who wish to reread the funeral speeches, we publice them here (in dutch and english) with some pictures in grateful memory of, and tributed to Frank.We will miss him dearly, thanks for being with him and with us, one way or another,

On behalf of my family and his closest friends, Esther

Serious request

Today I was at Kalorama for a so called family conversation. It turned out that Frank is doing very well (but we knew that already). However making all this progress is taking a lot of energy from Frank and because he is still in a rehab setting, the staff sees to it that he get's enough rest. That's really important to his still improving brain. So the request is to respect resting hours between 13.00-15.00 and stay in the evening not later than 21.30 and once Frank is in bed (at nigth) not getting him out of it. And although Frank wants to show to everybody his improvement and loves all the visits and attention, rest is a key ingredient of the rehab program.
Thanks for understanding,
Regards Esther

  2. Oh Boy, You don't need rehab but rest.
    And don't say "no no no" to that.

  3. Frank, don't make jokes like that without a warning. My coffee is now spluttered all over my keyboard.
